Paper Archives #1: Murmurecordings

Welcome to the first issue of Paper Archives.
We will be bringing (old) magazine articles, pictures, catalogs... stuff you can read/watch and reminisce over or learn about. And, remember, we're always looking for contributers (=send us stuff to publish)!

This first article is about a very important and legendary, perhaps the most legendary, group in Finland, "Murmurecordings". It is from Numero skateboarding magazine, 2nd issue, 1999 (author not mentioned but I'm guessing Mikko Kempas).

The article is in Finnish, but just to let you know something about this group, it is formed by the following OG's:
- Ceebrolistics (members now known as Mattip, RRKK / RPK / Roopek & Michael Black Electro, back then known as Treep, Esaar & Pijall). This is a group that you can NOT miss, where ever you live!
- Iwere (Harri Olin). I don't if anyone has such of collection of records, nor a collection of ones own solo-4-track tapes, nor such a unique style of music
- Plankton. The man who brought the West Coast underground sound the attention of the Finns, the man behind Anti-Party Music (we will be talking about this more later) and Kiltit Ihmiset
- Indievidual (aka Salvador / Mind Man) and DJ Use Only (Tommi Tawast)

They have been a signifigant trendsetters for a long-time in Finland through their own music and collective projects. The first Murmur-album "Poor Local Poetry" is a straight-up classic and featured PSC, Eclipse 427 and a few others.
